Alex Iwobi made a second-half appearance in Everton’s 2-0 defeat to Norwich City in Saturday’s Premier League game.

The 23-year-old came off the bench in the 56th minute of the encounter, replacing Morgan Schneiderlin after Todd Cantwell had opened the scoring for the Canaries.

The former Arsenal midfielder had an 85% successful pass rate and fired one shot which missed the target.

Iwobi’s contributions were not, however, enough to save his side from a home loss at Goodison Park, with Dennis Srbeny sealing victory for Norwich in the 90th minute.

The defeat saw Marco Silva’s men drop to 15th spot in the Premier League table with 14 points from 13 games.

Iwobi, who has two goals this season, will hope to return to Everton’s starting XI when they take on Wilfred Ndidi’s Leicester City on December 1.
